Sitti Katrina Baiddin Navarro, known as Sitti Navarro or simply Sitti (born November 29, 1984), is a Filipino bossa nova artist. She is of Maranao descent and is best known for her soothing voice and her album, Café Bossa, which became a best-seller domestically.
Navarro was born to lawyer Augusto Navarro and the former Lydia Baiddin, in Manila, Philippines. She graduated from the University of the Philippines in April 2005 with a degree in Business Economics. She was also editor-in-chief of the school paper and valedictorian in her high school days.
Navarro has won two beauty pageant awards: the title of Miss Visayas 2001 in the Miss Travel Girl Pageant, and the first runner-up prize in the search for "Miss Silka" where she also won both Miss Friendship and Best in Swimwear.
Since the age of 16, Navarro had been performing gigs at the Hyatt Calesa Bar and others. Although it was her dream to be a TV host, she is now one of the Philippines's newest young singers. In 2004, MTV Philippines started "MTV Supahstar: D' Super Search", where Navarro was one of the winners. She also appeared in the group's music videos, showcasing her talents. It led to her recording contract.
She is currently on more gigs to promote her album Café Bossa. She also has a second album entitled Sitti Live!, which was recorded at the Ortigas Park. Its DVD version came out at the end of 2006. Sitti has also re-released Café Bossa in February 2007, which includes a VCD.
Sitti has released at least two songs from Café Bossa: "Tattooed On My Mind", a remake of the D'Sound hit, and "Para Sa Akin". She is also known for her version of "One Note Samba", originally performed by bossa nova queen Astrud Gilberto, whom Sitti idolizes.
